Is my orthodontist good enough?

So i got braces 6 months ago. I have gaps between my incisors. My orthodontist has only changed my power chains 3 times and my wires twice. He barely checks my teeth when i have an appointment.During this 6 months i only felt pressure on my top incisors for the first two appointments i had but now he barely changes my wires or power chain even though i tell him numerous times that i feel no pressure whatsoever on my teeth he says that its okay.And i haven't even seen much progress in the last 4 months compared to the first two months when i got them.Whilst my friends who got braces around the same time as  but at a different orthodontist are already seeing major changes.is this normal ? or should i change my orthodontist >.<

Hey,
I honestly would not know if he's good but he's sort of a doctor, right? Maybe your teeth will change you've only had them for 6 months. I wouldn't worry, he probably knows what he's doing.

If you are not satisfied with your orthodontist then I would suggest you to check https://dentistsinmobileal.com. I have been using their services over 8 months. I appreciate their efforts.

6 months is just the beginning, will take 24 months, so don't worry and do what you orthodontist tell you to do.
